One of my Favorites!
So I have DLed and listened to a ton of The Mountain Goats and this is definitely within the top 3 of my favorite boots. I have been listening to it non-stop recently.
The audio is good quality, very steady, not too much ambient junk picked up either, but the real jem is the set list and the performance as a whole.
This set features one of the first times John plays "You Were Cool," but the real fire comes when John does "Minnesota," then again later when he does "Baboon." Not only are these rare songs for the boys to play, but John plays them with so much passion that it is infectious.
There is plenty of John and crowd banter that we have all come to know and love about tMGs shows. Also, in the second half of the set the band is joined by Craig Finn, from The Hold Steady, to sing "This Year."
Great boot, well worth the download and thanks a ton to the uploader for this one.
